Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Hydrogen

His primary areas of investigation include Combinatorics, Topology, Topological index, Organic chemistry and Graph. His work investigates the relationship between Combinatorics and topics such as Main diagonal that intersect with problems in Row and Distance. He usually deals with Topology and limits it to topics linked to Neighbourhood and Topological graph.

The concepts of his Topological index study are interwoven with issues in Quantitative structure–activity relationship and Molecular graph. His Quantitative structure–activity relationship research includes elements of Structure, Computational chemistry and Molecule. His research on Organic chemistry focuses in particular on Boiling point.

His most cited work include:

  • Highly discriminating distance-based topological index (766 citations)
  • Topological Indices and Related Descriptors in QSAR and QSPR (747 citations)
  • Chemical applications of graph theory (514 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Organic chemistry, Medicinal chemistry, Stereochemistry, Computational chemistry and Combinatorics. His study in Organic chemistry focuses on Pyridinium in particular. His research in Medicinal chemistry intersects with topics in Perchlorate, Aryl and Nucleophile.

Alexandru T. Balaban interconnects Crystallography and Ring in the investigation of issues within Stereochemistry. Alexandru T. Balaban has included themes like Quantitative structure–activity relationship and Molecule, Aromaticity in his Computational chemistry study. His study in Combinatorics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Discrete mathematics and Topology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Organic chemistry (23.88%)
  • Medicinal chemistry (19.81%)
  • Stereochemistry (11.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2005-2020)?

  • Organic chemistry (23.88%)
  • Stereochemistry (11.13%)
  • Computational chemistry (10.45%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Organic chemistry, Stereochemistry, Computational chemistry, Aromaticity and Molecule. His Organic chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Quantitative structure–activity relationship, Fluorescence and Medicinal chemistry. His research integrates issues of Ether and Radical in his study of Medicinal chemistry.

His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Crystallography and Ring. His work in Computational chemistry covers topics such as Conjugated system which are related to areas like Electron. The Aromaticity study which covers Valence that intersects with Double bond.

Between 2005 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Graphical representation of proteins. (95 citations)
  • Lipophilic pyrylium salts in the synthesis of efficient pyridinium-based cationic lipids, gemini surfactants, and lipophilic oligomers for gene delivery. (91 citations)
  • Discovery of Low Nanomolar and Subnanomolar Inhibitors of the Mycobacterial β-Carbonic Anhydrases Rv1284 and Rv3273 (69 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Hydrogen

Alexandru T. Balaban mostly deals with Aromaticity, Stereochemistry, Computational chemistry, Combinatorics and Conjugated system. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Crystallography, Benzene, Enzyme inhibitor and Carbonic anhydrase. Alexandru T. Balaban combines subjects such as Biphenylene, Organic chemistry, Anthracene, Molecular physics and Coronene with his study of Computational chemistry.

His study in Combinatorics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Discrete mathematics, Net and Euclidean geometry. His research in Discrete mathematics focuses on subjects like Topology, which are connected to Wiener index, Degeneracy and Molecular topology. His Conjugated system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbon, Molecule, Ring and Double bond.
